A destination is your chance to go somewhere new, do something different, and meet people from everywhere you can imagine.
Things to Know
- Choose from many types of events. See what life is really like for an M.D. or camp in the green depths of the Costa Rican rainforest.
- You can travel around the corner or around the globe.
- Check the site often — Getaway destinations are constantly being added.
- Don't be intimidated by the price. Many of the events are offered at reduced prices from what the public would be charged. Plus, you can earn Cookie Credit through the Cookie Sale and apply for the Juliette Low Leadership Society Financial Assistance Application.
Click, Pick, and Go
Click through the events. Pick your top four choices. Go on a destination (or two or three!). Travel has never been easier.
Between the Pick and Go
- Download the application form and complete it. You must complete a full application for each event you choose to apply to.
- Print out two copies of the reference form and ask two people who know how awesome you are to fill them out. You can use the same letters of reference for all of your applications. (Some events require more than two letters of reference — so read the event description carefully.)
- Send your application to Girl Scout of Eastern Oklahoma, ATTN: Dana Whittaker, 2432 E. 51StSt., Tulsa, OK 74105.
- Applications and reference must be received by the first Wednesday in November. All applications are then forwarded to the appropriate council/sponsor for the selection process. Girl Scouts of Eastern Oklahoma does not make selections.
- You'll know whether you've been accepted to go on your destination between January 15, 2014, and March 1, 2014.
A destination Match
There are six categories of destinations. Which one is right for you?
- International — events outside of the U.S. (events within the U.S. are also available)
- Outdoors — events ranging from learning outdoor skills to Outward Bound challenges on land or sea.
- STEM — events that take STEM to a new level. Learn animal behavior or what a doctor's life is like.
- People — events that visit cities and countrysides so you can experience the culture of new places.
- Apprenticeships — events that give you hands-on, real-life experience in a potential career field.
- Getaways — two- to four-day events all over the country that don't require the 2014 Girl Scout destinations application.
